just thought i would put in a shameless plug for my net store I just remodeled.  Not much use perhaps unless you are in norway, but if you feel like giving feedback that would also be appreciated.

while we are the topic of sensor cleaning, feel free to also mention what method you use.  Lately I have been using a blower (giottos blower) with a copperhill brush and swab method.

A nice clean site - way to go, leaf!

My only negative comment would be that the text in the images doesn't change when I select english as the language - probably not a big issue given your location, but one that really stands out for those who don't speak Bokmål or Nynorsk.

I currently use the Giotto big rocket as a blower along with the venerable Copper Hill stuff. I've also tried the Photographic Solutions Sensor Swab, which I found to be as effective as Cooper Hill, but much more expensive.

I'm not too pleased with the sensor swipe method in general (takes too long, have to swipe many times, quite finicky), and have it on my list to try the LensPen solution, of which I've read a few favorable reviews. I like how it opens up the possibility of cleaning the sensor in the field, as opposed to the wet method (usually involving the kitchen table - grin). As chance would have it, LensPen HQ is only a few km from my place; it will be interesting to talk with the principals of the business.

yeah i have seen that lens pen at bh photo but was hesitant to get it as it has some liquid in it, and imagined the liquid squirting all over the sensor.....

perhaps i should check it out a little more.

Nice looking site.... 

I use a blower, and when that dosn't work I use photosol sensor swabs + eclipse...

Because I shoot wide open or close to it 99% of the time (F/2.8-F/4) I don't tend to have to clean that often, although when I do the sensor is looking like a riverbed. :)

Particularly in summer when I cover a few motorsport events on dusty dirt circuits, and off-road events..

hey, where did you learn those fancy words like Bokml and Nynorsk??

yeah, i thought about that text that doesn't change language. Perhaps I should get that fixed.... most customers can speak norwegian and so i thought i would just leave it, but it would probably look better with english

LensPen products use a patented powder, not a liquid - they do a fantastic job on my lenses!
